Our approach

Setting up a technology intelligence unit within a company is a complex, expensive and time-consuming process. While there are some items of software available on the market that pledge to make this process as painless as possible, software alone is simply not enough! A good word processing program will never enhance an author’s writing skills, but merely make editing easier for them. The same applies to competitive intelligence software.Therefore, the competitive intelligence analyst, in addition to mastering the techniques for researching and analysing information, must also be experts in the sector to be tracked, so that they can validate and synthesize the information and provide a intelligence digests with high added value. This is why the KnowMade’s team is made up solely of highly qualified experts (PhD) who have been trained in the most effective technology intelligence techniques, so that they can provide you with information that is best suited to your needs.
